  • Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is one of my favourite memories of my trip to that country last year, and it is one of the best museums I have seen
  • It is the largest museum in the Netherlands, and even though there was some scaffolding around the outside of the beautiful exterior when we were there that partially obstructed the view, it didn’t detract from this amazing experience
  • I greatly enjoyed the Rembrandt and Van Gough rooms, and I was really blown away by the sheer number of paintings
  • I had not been familiar with Jan Vermeer before, so I was happy to learn about this interesting artist
  • My favourite exhibit was the history of Delft art, which I had known little about

      Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is one of my favourite memories of my trip to that country last year, and it is one of the best museums I have seen. It was within walking distance of the downtown core, where our hotel was located, but it also is on the main route of all the bus routes in the city. It is in an area that has many museums. It is the largest museum in the Netherlands, and even though there was some scaffolding around the outside of the beautiful

      exterior when we were there that partially obstructed the view, it didn’t detract from this amazing experience.

      First of all, the Museum is open every day from 10-5, so you don’t need to worry about a variation in times according to the day of the week, which I have found to sometimes be the case in other countries, and can lead to disappointment if you are trying to plan your schedule around opening times. Secondly, the entrance fee is extremely reasonable, at 10 Euro per person. Thirdly, although the exhibits are ...


      • extensive, you don’t need a guided tour; it is relatively simple to see it on your own.

        Although Rijksmuseum is known for its huge collection of the Dutch masters, there are other great works of art here too, but I focused mainly on the 13 rooms of the Masterpiece Collection. I greatly enjoyed the Rembrandt and Van Gough rooms, and I was really blown away by the sheer number of paintings. I had not been familiar with Jan Vermeer before, so I was happy to learn about this interesting artist. My

        favourite exhibit was the history of Delft art, which I had known little about. We spent 3 hours browsing this museum, and the time flew by. On the way out, I was able to purchase a print of a Jan Vermeer Delft painting for only 20 Euro and it now hangs in my living room. There are many prints of the original works of art available to purchase for a very reasonable price.

        Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is one of the best museums in Europe and is a must-see while in the Netherlands.
